If you are on my email list, I can only imagine your response to getting this post.
- I thought he quit and went back to working in Insurance.
- I thought he was forced to flee the country.
- I thought he was on an expedition to India “find himself”.
What really happened
All of those were good guesses and all had a decent chance at being correct, however, it was not that exciting.
I started a new position as a Landscape Designer last March. The time and more importantly mental energy required to create blog posts was effectively used up for the rest of the year. My noggin needed R&R and was not going to take no for an answer.
So like another time I came back to writing after taking a breather (my 100th post), I am making this a quick one and just sharing a few photos of my garden from last year to give you an idea how things are developing.
Your property is beautiful. I read your article about Prairie Dropseed and thought the photo you used was from a magazine. You certainly know how to combine plants well. The Bradbury Monarda and Bluestar look great together, as does the Butterfly Weed and Bluestem.
Thank you for the kind words.

I’m new to your posts. Where do you live? You have a garden I can only dream of. I’m in Sydney with a horrendous drought. Severe water restrictions and my garden is a disaster ATM. I have a watering system but it is severely restricted. I can only hope it rains soon. Most of my established plantings are hanging in there but I stupidly did some planting I November and I have lost all of them. At least I’m not in a bushfire zone so I have little to complain about.
Please keep up with you’re photos so I can continue dreaming!!!
I am in the far northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL USA.
I am hoping rain heads your way soon as well as for your entire country.
Good luck in the new job, and I appreciate your thinking of us gardeners as time permits.
